  1. Same for 10.6.5(10H574) and 10.6.6(10J521) :)


    Fabio, does that mean everything is OK to install 10.6.5?


    The new Chameleon installer dgobe referred to above is in the post linked below. Just install over your current one and then do a permissions repair (just in case), problem solved :)


    The file link in that thread to the bootloader doesn't work any more.

  2. Ok, this is what I have done:


    1) I succesfuly installed Snow Leopard 10.6.3;

    2) I installed the drivers for Intel 3945ABG from here;


    now everytime I try to turn on the Mac I receive the panic screen.

    How can I fix this?

    Thank you in advance.





    If you want my opinion, remove the Voodoo Wireless kexts. They just don't work.

    Although Mercurysquad is supposedly working on fixes, I can't see it myself. A few people have got them to work, but even then, it has to be on unsecured networks.

    For me, on my laptop that uses the 3945, a £10 USB wireless adaptor was the answer.

    BTW, if you want the latest from MercurySquad, it's best to look at the Facebook page


  3. ===================================================================



    -create (or if exists: edit) the file /etc/fstab

    -in it put the following statement: LABEL={ntsf-volume-label} none ntfs rw

    -reboot the Mac





    Snow Leopard has the ability to mount NTFS volumes as read/write, but it's not enabled by default

    -- just read only is supported, as in 10.5. Here's how to get full read/write support

    for NTFS drives in Snow Leopard. First, uninstall NTFS-3G or Paragon if you're using either one.


    Here's how to get read/write support for NTFS drives in Snow Leopard:


    1. In Terminal, type diskutil info /Volumes/volume_name, where volume_name

    is the name of the NTFS volume.

    From the output, copy the Volume UUID value to the clipboard.

    2. Back up /etc/fstab if you have it; it shouldn't be there in a default install.

    3. Type sudo nano /etc/fstab.

    4. In the editor, type UUID=, then paste the UUID number you copied from the clipboard.

    Type a Space, then type none ntfs rw. The final line should look like this:

    UUID=123-456-789 none ntfs rw

    , where 123-456-789 is the UUID you copied in the first step.

    5. Repeat the above steps for any other NTFS drives/partitions you have.

    6. Save the file and quit nano (Control-X, Y, Enter), then restart your system.


    After rebooting, NTFS partitions should natively have read and write support.

    This works with both 32- and 64-bit kernels. Support is quite good and fast,

    and it even recognizes file attributes such as hidden files.

    My thanks go to Chrysaor, a MacRumors user who brought this to our attention.

    No, no, no!

    Use that method at your own peril. It is very dangerous. I and many others have had all sorts of difficulties with that, i.e. file and disk corruption. I had to reinstall Windows after using that method many months ago.

    Apple would have used that officially if it was reliable.

    Paragon NTFS is the way to go.

  4. Just following on from Beerkex't's link to our previous thread, since then I have done various tests using DSDT string patching, and for me, the test results with GraphicEnabler are as good as anything else I have tried. So, for simplicity, that is what I use.

    (Still can't get Mirror Display to work with anything though!)

  5. I have had problems with MacFuse and Paragon NTFS on the Mac, and Ubuntu Linux

    when dealing with NTFS, its just not worth taking the chance



    With MacFuse and Ubuntu I lost files, and Paragon NTFS made a corrupted directory

    that could not be read or deleted buy ether Mac or Windows, had to re-format

    What version of Paragon NTFS were you using at the time? Version 8 is supposed to be pretty impressive.
